Andrei Papko is a longtime ally of Taras Seredyuk, one of the co-owners of Mafia. They worked together at Mobilochka, where the new Mafia CEO was the head of the retail network of the cellular retailer. In the “Mafia” came to the position of commercial director in June 2013.

Under his leadership, “Mafia” has grown to two dozen points, began active development in franchising and the development of regions.

Olga Nasonova, head of Restaurant Consulting, suggests that the reason for changing the CEO is to change the company’s development priorities. “Perhaps at the current stage of the company’s development, a manager is needed who will focus on consolidating the results achieved. While Rezuev focused on active growth, ”she says.

Since the end of 2011, Mafia has been actively growing both in terms of revenue and profit. “But because of the rapid growth, as is often the case, the quality began to decline. I was convinced by my own experience, ”says Nasonova. According to Papko, the main task that the owners have set for him is the improvement of the quality of service. Active development of the network is in the background.
